It's only been 7 months. So far, so good. Like every Jewish couple, we literally signed a contract at our wedding. We amended ours to say exactly what is expected of each of us. For instance, he is expected to be the main breadwinner and I'm responsible for keeping the house picked up and having dinner ready when he gets home. I do work outside the home 2 days a week, and we have a plan on those days. We also said that we would always be honest and keep the lines of communication open. We have this motto of us against the world. Our relationship, although filled with lots of love, isn't based solely on that. We each have a responsibility to raise these kids in a healthy environment. If we were to divorce, I think it would be amicable. Unless of course, he cheats. It's not perfect, and we surely forgot some things to add to the contract (like him picking back up the habit of smoking) but so far so good.
